Kaweah Delta 6th Annual Quality and Patient Safety Symposium The Science of Improvement and the Art of Improvisation: Collaborative Tools to Accelerate Change
Change the conversation about improvement, activate your team,
and accelerate your work.
We can’t do it alone. More than ever before, healthcare
needs people who can successfully collaborate with their
colleagues, patients and families to deliver on the promise of
high quality, affordable care and exceptional
experience. While we often know what needs to be
done from a quality improvement standpoint, the how to
work together to do it can be challenging. In this hands-on,
high-energy workshop you’ll explore the science of improvement
and learn a complimentary structure for teamwork and
collaboration based on techniques used in improvisational
theater. Reframe and revitalize your improvement efforts
with tools to help you become more flexible, agile and supportive
as you co-design solutions that make an impact.
After this workshop, participants will be able to:
Explain how an improvisational mindset and adaptive
engagement methods can complement foundational quality
Describe the Six Guiding Principles of Quality Improv(e) and
the Simple Tools to Ignite Change Toolkit and how to apply them.
Use easy-to-learn tools and techniques that foster teamwork,
collaboration and courageous quality improvement.
